2019 National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB) Borlaug Scholar Sarah Marsh talks to Seed World’s Marc Zienkiewicz about the world’s most-consumed alcoholic beverage that you’ve probably never heard of. She also offers some insight into why she plays one of the roughest sports around — rugby.

Marsh is a senior plant and environmental soil science major with a plant breeding minor from Texas A&M University. She is originally from a family farm in Northern California, where from a young age she became interested in agriculture and the ways in which it could be advanced. She is chancellor of the Texas A&M University chapter of Alpha Zeta and Secretary of the Agronomy Society.
